Hi there:

If you’re Buick LaCrosse is experiencing overheating issues, it’s possible that you have suffered severe internal engine damage or damage to ignition system components such as your crankshaft position sensor or the electrical harnesses connected to these components. You should probably have a local mechanic determine why you’re having the overheating issues first, which will most likely help them also diagnose why the vehicle’s having starting problems as well.
